NZ Pass Verifier
NZ Pass Verifier is a free Ministry of Health app for businesses to scan and verify their customers’ My Vaccine Pass.
About NZ Pass Verifier
When the COVID-19 Protection Framework is in place, some businesses will be required to check customers’ My Vaccine Pass with the NZ Pass Verifier app in certain traffic light settings.
Requirements will depend on the business sector and the choices the business has made about how they will operate under the framework.
You can’t use the NZ Pass Verifier to scan International Travel Vaccination Certificates.
How to use NZ Pass Verifier
Allow camera permissions
The NZ Pass Verifier app requires camera permissions so it can scan My Vaccine Pass QR codes.
The app will request this permission when you start to scan.
Scan COVID-19 My Vaccine Passes
To scan a pass, press the large ‘Scan’ button. This will bring up the scanning screen.
Point your phone at the QR code on the pass so that it fits within the target area on your screen. A results screen will appear to indicate whether the My Vaccine Pass is valid or not.
If the NZ Vaccine Pass is not valid, the app will tell you why this might be, this could include:
- the pass has expired
- or the QR code can’t be verified
To scan another pass, tap the ‘Scan again’ button or swipe the results screen downwards to dismiss it.
Scanning passes with no internet
Internet is needed for the initial app download and the first scan, but after that, the NZ Pass Verifier app can scan My Vaccine Pass without an internet connection but should be connected to the internet on a regular basis to ensure it can verify all valid My Vaccine Passes.
